Total Soccer Show: USMNT, Champions League, EPL, and more ...

Long-running American soccer show covering the USMNT, Premier League, Champions League, MLS, and more. If you enjoy analysis and silliness in equal measure, we're the podcast for you.


CCV's FA Cup debut, plus: talking USL/NASL Div II sanctioning and Minnesota United w/ FiftyFiveOne's Jeff Rueter

So much America in this show. We open with a quick discussion of Carli Lloyd's unexpected FIFA Women's Player of the Year win and the mighty mighty Wolverhampton Wanderers' FA Cup win over Stoke City.

Starting at 5:36 we offer updates on young Americans in Europe, including Emerson Hyndman (who's off to play some fitba), Cameron Carter-Vickers (who made his FA Cup debut for Spurs this weekend), Julian Green of Stuttgart, Haji Wright of Schalke, McKinze Gaines of Wolfsburg, and Gedion Zelalem (who may or may not be on the move to Borussia Dortmund).

Starting 30:45, Daryl interviews Jeff Rueter of the excellent website about US Soccer's decision to grant provisional Division II status to both the NASL and the USL. Jeff gives some insight into what went on behind the scenes during US Soccer's deliberations and why the whole process was so secretive. Jeff also talks Minnesota United and the team's preparation for MLS 2017.
